About the restaurant Le Socrate

ESPRIT CANAILLE - Il y a une atmosphère de bouchon lyonnais dans ce vieux bistrot tout proche de Plainpalais et du boulevard des Philosophes ! Déco rétro et objets anciens aux murs, sol en damier et petites tables en bois : Le Socrate est un bon troquet comme on les aime.

SAVEURS D'ANTAN - À vous les petits plats fait maison à la Française ! Terrine de la grand-mère Angèle ou os à moelle à la fleur de sel, joue de bœuf braisée, souris d'agneau confite au thym frais et fondant au chocolat, vous ferez le plein d’authenticité.

BY GAULT MILLAU - Recommandé par le célèbre guide, voici un joli recoin de Genève où l’on vient aussi pour déguster un bon verre de vin…

Fair value with 50% off. Would go again at that rate. As usual in Geneva minimum wine price was 56 CHF per bottle. Very good wine list! Food was generally very good. This was a crowded small restaurant with two servers. Still service was good. The place was a bit noisy, but not extreme.

The food didn’t wow us. The service was not on par. The lady was so in a hurry (which I can understand because she was alone and 1 person at the bar for a full restaurant) she splashed on me whilst pouring the drinks and she didn’t even noticed. In fairness to her, she tried but I think there were too many people for 1.5 person to serve, that it lacked personal touch.

Reasonable restaurant - food correct, not incredible. Fruit flies of some sort proved annoying. Cute setting, but afraid I can’t gift this any more than average.

Extremely disappointing. The food was below average entrée and main course, service slow and confused, place overcrowded we could barely breathe.
On top of that the fourchette offer doesn't apply on the "chasse" although it was not mentioned when we booked and we got only 1 serving instead of 2 due to a mistake. The service was so slow that I didn't bother to mention that, we just paid and left.

A typical parisian brasserie in Geneva! Amazing "Souris d'agneau" and good wines.

The restaurant has a great ambience, wonderful lyonnaise and French plates and nice wine list. Will definitively recommend and return, a great find in Geneve.
